The target of this presentation would be the "geeks" :D
I'd like to convince them they need Average Jane or Joe, so I'd like to
convince them to welcome Average Jane or Joe, and to learn geeks how to
speak to them.
You know, I am an Average Jane, and it has been quite difficult to me to
enter the community. Difficult, but not impossible! And now, I simply love
FLOSS. So I'd like to explain how Mozillians managed to catch my attention.

Am I clear? :-)
